East Lyme school marching band practices as competitions go virtual this year

East Lyme — The East Lyme High School marching band has had to get creative during its band camp this year, due to coronavirus restrictions.

Units of the band were scattered around the high school's campus and the lawn of neighboring Flanders Elementary School on Tuesday, the second day of the camp, which runs noon to 8 p.m. through Friday. After that, they will begin practicing every Tuesday and Thursday until the end of their U.S. Marching Band Circuit competition season.

All the competitions this season will be virtual.

Angelica Fadrowski, the director of bands at East Lyme High School, said the band's season was able to go on as scheduled because it is easy for members to social distance, they don't share equipment and they connect by making music together.
